A brewery in Fremont

I got a call today from a man with an impeccably German name who wants to brew German inspired beer on South Grimmer Boulevard, a few blocks from Fremont Boulevard.

Jan Schutze, who lives in Fremont, is going through the hoops to open DasBrew next year. He has an ABC permit pending, but hasn’t quite climbed through the hoop known as the Fremont Planning Department.

Schutze plan is just for a brewery a la Laverne & Shirley. There wouldn’t be a tasting room or restaurant, but it could be available in local stores.
